THE GREAT OUT­DOORS

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Dayle and Nick’s prop­erty is around 1200 square me­tres, with a good mix of lawn and es­tab­lished trees. “We love the fact that it’s a flat, open space, which is great for the kids, but also very pri­vate,” says Dayle. The brick paved area is ideal for out­door en­ter­tain­ing, and in sum­mer she moves their large teak ta­ble to un­der­neath the shade of the pear tree, her favourite plant in the gar­den. “We love the con­cept of in­door/out­door liv­ing, and have wide ve­ran­dahs around the house to cater to this. We’re so for­tu­nate to have the bush around us and beaches nearby.”
